Read Derren Brown's GQ Interview

December's British GQ includes a great Q&A with Derren Brown, which you can read at: GQ. Here's my favorite exchange from the interview:

Who owes you an apology? 

Nobody. I do appreciate it when people say sorry, or thank you - it bugs me when they don't. But people fight their own battles and generally operate in the way they think is best, and if I had had all their life experiences up to the point that they did whatever annoying thing they did, I imagine I'd have acted in the same way too. And if you walk around with a self-pitying narrative about your life that includes people who owe you apologies, you need to reconsider. 

As always, most of DB's answer are tongue-in-cheek.
